CIS member states publish Declaration on Ethical Principles of Scientific Activities

The Inter-Parliamentary Assembly of the CIS member states has approved a Declaration on Ethical Principles of Scientific Activities. The Declaration establishes a standard of ethically justified research activity as a foundation for its own arranging, as well as for public policy focused on its support.

The Declaration addressed the parliaments and governments of the CIS member states, national and public academies of sciences, scientific organizations and institutions, scientific associations, researchers, community organizations and groups involved in the science and interested in its development.

The full text of the Declaration in Russian and in English is available online. In many aspects, the Declaration correlates with the European Charter for Researchers (2005).
